As of June 1, 2018, obituaries and in memoriam articles will no longer be cited and indexed with Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) for MEDLINE. In the past, many obituaries and "in memoriam" articles were indexed for MEDLINE based on subjective criteria that lead to inconsistent coverage; if an article was substantive it was cited and indexed with MeSH. However, most obituaries and in memoriam articles are not substantive and will no longer be cited and indexed. Substantive biographies will continue to be indexed for MEDLINE.
NLM Technical Bulletin, May-Jun 2018, Policy Change for Multiple Translations of the Same Journal Article
05/21/2018 10:39 AM EDT
As of June 2018, only the English version of multi-language articles will appear in PubMed/MEDLINE and be indexed for MEDLINE. In the past, when journals published multiple translations of an article in the same issue, the English version was indexed for MEDLINE and citations for any non-English versions were included in PubMed as PubMed-not-MEDLINE (where Medical Subject Headings are not added). In many cases, users will still have access to the non-English versions of these articles when they access the full text on the publisher's Web site.
